Mumbai: Weary from her jam-packed schedule, Vidya Balan finally broke down on the sets of Sujoy Ghosh’s film in Kolkata.

News has it that constant shooting in a damp and stuffed location for one film during day and dubbing for another film at night has taken toll on Vidya’s health.

Apparently, after Priyanka and Katrina, Vidya is the latest addition to the list of B-town divas, who suffer from health issues due to acute work pressure.

It is believed that Vidya had been burning the midnight oil for couple of months while shooting and dubbing for couple of projects simultaneously. However, in the middle of a shoot, Vidya suddenly burst into loud tears.

Talking to a daily, Vidya confirmed the news and said, “Yes, it happened a few days ago and it scared the hell out of me and everyone in the unit. I am not prone to tantrums or outbursts. It was work pressure. In the past three months I didn’t have a day’s respite I don’t know what happened to me. I just broke down. It was work pressure. In the past three months I didn’t have a day’s respite. It was crazy. I was shooting all day for Sujoy’s film in Kolkata.”

“Then director Rajkumar Gupta’s people had flown to Kolkata for my dubbing of ‘No One Killed Jessica’ because that is releasing on January 7. So I was dubbing in the night. It was tough schedule. I guess I overdid it. My breakdown was as much a shock to me as it was for them. I don’t know what happened. I’ve been shooting in Kolkata for a month and I’ve to shoot for another month. Kolkata is my favourite city. I am seeing it like never before. This is my third full-fledged film in Kolkata. Much as I love the city I do miss my home and family in Mumbai,” added the actress.

Hey Vidya, take a break dear!
